Wide square where you can find multiple restaurants and terraces. Beautiful during the spring and summer. There are some attractions near by like the Brukenthal Palace.

The square is surounded by museums,nice restaurants and cozy caffes.....big enough and full of people.I definitly recommend you to go there on Christmas because there are nice concerts and kiosks from where you can buy all sort of things such as:toys,sweets,clothes,etc.

I liked the Square full of lights and traditional cottages with local or internațional products. I didn't like the carrousels and the cars Game - It didn't belong there.

The square looks great at night, all these lights and all the snow covering the square... If you are lucky to be there when there is an event, it will also be nice. For example, when there is the Christmas market, but I missed it. There are beautiful buildings around the square and it is a good meeting point.

Very nice square, full of historical buildings. Many events take place there. It definitely worth a tour and can be your starting point to visit the numerous museums in Sibiu or to find a nice restaurant or pub.

Visited during christmas holidays. Very cold, Very graphic. One typical think about Sibiu is the 'eyes' of the roofs which if there is snow it looks wonderful. Alot of hot wine in the streets and big christmas market. Lots of people, really cold. Drawback is that all cafes seem to allow smokers to smoke inside and there is not control... More

The best preserved Main Square in Transylvania. Saxon traditional architecture used wisely in XXI century.
